In recognition of Veterans Day 2013, AACOM invited its member colleges to participate in the second annual Joining Forces Veterans Day military medicine education initiative coordinated by AACOM’s Joining Forces Advisory Group. The purpose of this effort is to raise awareness of military health issues and to uphold AACOM’s pledge to ensure that future physicians training in the nation’s osteopathic medical colleges are qualified to meet the unique clinical challenges associated with caring for military service members and veterans, and their families. Colleges that participated in this effort by organizing and hosting a military medicine educational session for their students during the week of November 11-15 are strongly encouraged to share photos and highlights from their event. Please send submissions to email@example.com.
AACOM is developing several other projects in accordance with its pledge of support to the Joining Forces initiative. Check the AACOM Joining Forces webpage regularly for updates.
